ive just recntly got a 8600gt graphics card which comes with a hdmi port a vga/out and a dvi/out port i was wondering is there anyway i can connect a pc to tv sender to it to run as it needs a video out and a s-video out which isnt on the graphics card.
im confused help.


3 ports on one card? Never seen that before.

omg the quality would be awful, just don't bother

not bothered about quaility just want it on to try, is there a way or an adapter i can use on my graphics card to get these ports

forget the hdmi and dvi as they are both digital interfaces.
Not 100% sure if one is available but it should be possible to patch vga and a sound to svhs but u said s video? surely there is a sound input as well? or is that only possible thru the svhs try dogpile for vga to svhs see if theres anything that matches

Can you explain in a bit more detail what you are trying to achieve?

My 2003 9800pro has DVI, VGA and S-video, 3 outputs on cards have been around for quite a while.

ive got a pc to tv wireless sender which requires an s-video slot to work this is what i want it for

In that case, you should either have received an s-video cable with the graphics card or you will need to buy one, and plug it into the graphics card, then plug the other end into the sender, and plug the receiver into the tv.

That should make it work.
